Law, Order and Justice The HC order means that everything that happened after the chargesheet was filed, including the trial and court proceedings, have been held as bad in law, on technical grounds. Sanyukta Dharmadhikari A procedural lapse by the Karnataka state government in 2015 and a very technical view taken by the Karnataka High Court has led to the chargesheet filed against rape-accused Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swamy to be held null and void. The Karnataka High Court has ruled that the chargesheet in a 2014 rape case against the head seer of the Ramachandrapura Math was not filed by the appropriate police station, and therefore it has no consequence in law. This judgment means that everything that happened after the chargesheet was filed, including trial and court proceedings, has been held as bad in law, on technical grounds. The case is from 2014, when a woman employed as a Rama Katha singer at the Ramachandrapura Math, alleged that she was sexually assaulted multiple times between 2011 and 2014 by Raghaveshwara Bharathi Swamy. The chargesheet was filed in September 2015, when the Congress was in power in the state. A Karnataka sessions court in 2016 discharged the seer, saying that there is absolutely no iota of materials to frame the charges against the accused. The survivor, as well as the state, had filed two separate criminal revision petitions in the High Court in 2016 against the trial court discharge verdict. The Karnataka High Court bench of Justice Srishananda on December 29, 2021, dismissed both the criminal revision petitions on two counts one that the survivor did not have the legal capacity to challenge the trial court verdict, and that the Crime Investigation Department (CID) team which filed the chargesheet in the rape case did not have the jurisdiction to do so, and hence the chargesheet is invalid. Coming to the states revision petition, filed by the CID in the Karnataka High Court, the bench of Justice Srishananda held that as per criminal law, the chargesheet has to be filed by an officer at a police station. This is mandated under Section 173 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC). The law says: As soon as it is completed, the officer in charge of the police station shall forward to a Magistrate empowered to take cognizance of the offence on a police report, a report in the form prescribed by the State Government. However, since the Crime Investigation Department (CID), which filed the chargesheet, was not officially designated as a police station, the chargesheet does not stand in law. The Crime Investigation Department has an investigation wing headquartered in Bengaluru, but it is not designated as a police station. A 1979 Karnataka government notification allows CID officers to investigate an offence and this officer will be an officer-in-charge of the police station. But the court has said that the criminal law is clear and though the CID can investigate cases, the chargesheet has to be filed by the police station where the FIR was lodged. In this case, this did not happen, the court said. The court relied on a recent Karnataka High Court judgment to say that as per law, only an officer in charge of the police station can file a conclusive report or a chargesheet in a case. Though the prosecution cited a government order, the High Court held that the government order only empowers the CID to investigate the case, but the chargesheet should have been filed by the police station in this case, the Girinagar police station where the FIR was first registered. The basic requirement of declaration of an officer of CID to be an officer-in-charge of the police station, that is, the office of CID should be declared to be a police station. Admittedly, there is no notification issued under Section 2(m) (supra) declaring an officer of CID to be a police station. Therefore, the officer-in-charge in the office of the CID cannot be an officer-in-charge of a police station, without at the outset the office of the CID being declared as a police station, a different bench of the Karnataka High Court had held earlier on December 13. (Notably, this was a petition filed by one Mahesh*, against proceedings of his divorce case, and the woman he is married to has also accused Raghaveshwara Bharathi of raping her multiple times when she was a minor.) Not a precedent However, it is surprising that firstly, the chargesheet was not filed as per the law by the officer-in-charge at the Girinagar police station who first filed the rape case in 2014. Secondly, the Karnataka High Court has ruled in a very technical manner, says Bengaluru-based senior advocate S Balan. Consider the example of the City Crime Branch (CCB) in Karnataka, he explains. The CCB is also an investigating team. The Commissioner of Police directs the CCB to probe a case for a specific investigative purpose. The CCB is also not a police station. However, they file chargesheets in cases like cybercrime, economic offences exceeding Rs 1 crore, murder cases in all these cases, they can investigate and file chargesheet. Now, on a similar note, the Karnataka High Court in January 2021 said that the CCB cannot file a chargesheet. This case has been stayed and is pending in the Supreme Court. But, there are cases where chargesheets have been filed by the CCB and this technical issue is not raised. In the rape case, there's an influential Hindu swamy who is the accused. It is a controversial point. And the court has held the chargesheet issue only in this case. Can the court quash all such chargesheets? Can the court nullify the authority of CID? he asks. A woman is raped, and just for a technical ground, the courts say that investigating agencies cannot file a chargesheet then what about the woman? Should this be set aside or should it be referred to the police station to file a chargesheet? advocate Balan asks. Advocate Balan says that there have been cases where the CID, or even the CCB, has filed a chargesheet and the accused have been convicted for life. They (courts) don't even grant bail, he says, adding that this is where a 'predictive policing algorithm comes into play that there is a bias, often over the religion of the accused. Take the case of Abdul Nasser Madani, leader of Kerala's People Democratic Party, who is facing trial in the 2008 Bengaluru serial blasts case. In the Madani case, the chargesheet was filed by the CCB, and the court does not grant bail. The trial has been going on for the last 13 years, advocate Balan says. See, I openly say, if a Muslim is an offender in a case, whatever the police do, the High Courts do not intervene, the advocate says. If the accused is a Muslim, no technicality. If the accused is a Hindu Swamiji, all technicalities the High Court considers. It's very discriminating. That's how the state works, the judiciary works, he adds. Why court dismissed survivors petition In the revision petition filed by the survivor, the accused seers counsel had submitted to the court that she cannot contest every order of the court in the course of the trial, which the High Court has agreed with. The High Court said that in India, under the law, a victim has limited rights to contest or appeal against an order. According to criminal laws in India, a victim or survivor of a crime can appeal against a final order only under three conditions. One, the victim can appeal against an order of acquittal; two, if the punishment or sentence is lesser or inadequate; and three, in case compensation is not enough or is inadequate. Victimology, or the study of victims of a crime, is a developing concept of India, the court held, and victims have a very specific right. This specific right to appeal cannot be applied to each and every order that is passed by the trial court. The court said that the state or public prosecutor is empowered by the criminal laws to contest the trial court order, but a victim or survivor of that crime is not necessarily empowered to do so. The court cannot pass orders to allow the victims appeal because it is the Legislatures job to strengthen victims rights in India, and the judiciary cannot usurp the area of the Legislature through a judicial order. In future, on the further development of victimology, the legislature may carve out necessary rights for the victim as well, even to challenge the orders that would be passed during the trial depending upon the need that may arise in a given case, the High Court held. Also read: Indias justice system hardly cares about what the victim wants, and this must change Therefore, the survivors revision petition was held not maintainable and was dismissed by the Karnataka High Court. A fit case for appeal This is a fit case for the Supreme Court to examine, legal experts whom TNM spoke to said. The survivors lawyer, speaking to TNM, had said that they are planning to appeal against the High Court order in the Supreme Court. The case pertains to the alleged sexual assault of a woman disciple who had joined the Rama Katha programme at the Ramachandrapura Math in 2010 and was the main singer in a troupe of five. The seer allegedly started making advances towards her in September 2011, and in October 2011, he allegedly raped her. He allegedly also called her into his private chambers on the pretext of 'praying to Lord Rama', and according to the survivor, she could not resist the sexual assault as she was suffused with the fear of divine wrath and felt bound by the vow forced on her. A case was filed, and after the trial, the Karnataka trial court acquitted him. The woman and the police probing the case had both filed separate petitions in the Karnataka High Court challenging the verdict. Raghaveshwara Bharathi, originally Harish Sharma before he became a godman, is the current head seer of Ramachandrapura Math in Karnatakas Shivamogga district. He belongs to the small but extremely powerful Havyaka Brahmin caste in Karnataka. Apart from this rape case, and another one involving a minor, Raghaveshwara Bharathi has also been facing other cases there are charges of alleged land grabbing and misuse of power against him. TNM had earlier reported on the series of recusals by Karnataka High Court judges from various cases that Raghaveshwara is facing.

Aviation During the period, the Bengaluru airport has been able to recover 48% of the pre-COVID level traffic of 33.65 million total passengers handled in CY 2019. IANS PTI The Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru (BLR Airport) has welcomed 16.07 million passengers, registering a growth of 18.9 per cent in Calender Year 2021 (CY 2021) when compared to 13.51 million passengers in 2020. During the period, the BLR Airport has been able to recover 48.0 per cent of the pre-COVID level traffic of 33.65 million passengers handled in CY 2019. The airport also recorded its highest-ever cargo tonnage, despite a turbulent pandemic environment. With the gradual easing of curbs by various state governments, domestic passenger traffic recorded a double-digit growth of 22.0 per cent, an upswing from 12.39 million in CY 2020 to 15.12 million in CY 2021. During the period, the BLR Airport processed an all-time high tonnage of 406,688 Metric Tonnes (MT) of cargo, recording a significant growth of 28.6 per cent versus 316,305 MT in 2020. Similarly, the international cargo recorded a 32.8 per cent growth, 265,873 MT processed, as compared to 200,209 MT in 2020. Domestic cargo grew at 21.3 per cent, 140,815 MT processed versus 116,096 MT in 2020. The US and Europe continue to be the top trade lanes from BLR Airport.The tremendous recovery in air cargo is a positive sign for the aviation sector that has been severely impacted by the pandemic, said Hari Marar, MD and CEO, Bangalore International Airport Limited.The key factors that contributed to the cargo growth at Bengaluru Airport are our resilient ecosystem that ensured efficient operations round the clock; focus on supply chain efficiencies; conducive geographic location, aided with robust infrastructure and technology; right mix of commodities, and adequate airline capacities to key markets, globally, Marar added. A total of 13 airlines operate freighters to and from Bengaluru Airport to various domestic and international destinations. Notably, the BLR Airport has emerged as the number 1 airport in the country for perishable exports, accounting for 31.0 per cent of India's total perishable shipments during FY 2020-21. Meanwhile, international passenger traffic shrunk by 15.5 per cent, from 1.12 million in CY 2020 to 0.94 million in CY 2021.The positive environment in 2021 ignited hopes for a better 2022 in terms of recovery. However, the recent outbreak of the new Omicron variant followed by a rapid surge in Covid-19 cases across the country is expected to suppress growth further, said Marar.We believe that air traffic will eventually recover. However, the pace of recovery will depend on factors such as favorable policies by regulators and easing of travel restrictions across the country and the globe, amongst others, he added. The year also saw a significant growth in the number of domestic destinations from 54 (pre-Covid) to 74, the highest ever for Bengaluru Airport. Meanwhile, the BLR Airport currently serves 20 international destinations under the Government of India's Air Bubble arrangement. The top domestic routes in CY 2021 were Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Hyderabad and Goa, with these sectors contributing 40.0 per cent to the traffic. On the international front, Dubai, Male, Doha, London, and Frankfurt were the top cities, contributing 70.0 per cent to the traffic. In January, Air India commenced the twice weekly, non-stop Bengaluru-San Francisco service. With this, BLR Airport became the first airport in South and Central India to have direct connectivity to North America. Japan Airlines commenced flights under the Air Bubble arrangement between Bengaluru-Tokyo Narita from March 2021. Meanwhile, United Airlines and American Airlines are expected to commence operations in 2022 to San Francisco and Seattle, respectively. BLR Airport concluded the year 2021 on a memorable note by winning the CII Customer Obsession Award from the Confederation of Indian Industries. This is the first time that an Airport in India has won the CII Customer Obsession Award.

Politics Revenue Minister R Ashoka and Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister J C Madhuswamy have not been assigned any districts. PTI Almost six months into his government coming to office, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai on Monday, January 24, allocated districts among the Ministers of his Cabinet, of which they will be in-charge, while keeping the key Bengaluru Urban district with himself. Effecting a complete change to the previous BS Yediyurappa-led BJP government, CM Bommai has not assigned any minister their home districts under which their Assembly constituency comes. While at least two senior ministers Revenue Minister R Ashoka and Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister J C Madhuswamy have not been assigned any districts, three Ministers BC Patil, K Gopalaiah and Shankar B Patil Munenakoppa have been allocated two districts each. This is the first time after the Bommai government came to power that each district has got an in-charge Minister, as earlier Ministers were assigned districts only for COVID-19 management and for flag-hoisting at headquarters on Independence Day. As indicated recently, the Chief Minister, who will complete six months in office on January 28, will continue to remain Minister in-charge for Bengaluru development. This even as senior Minister V Somanna, currently holding the Housing portfolio, had openly expressed his desire to be made in-charge of Bengaluru amid reports that some city legislators and ministers were expressing their reservation internally about a move to give the post to Revenue Minister R Ashoka, considered close to Bommai. With the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike elections due to take place, it was earlier widely expected that the responsibility of Bengaluru development would be allocated to a senior minister from the city. However, the Chief Minister has retained it like his predecessor BS Yediyurappa did, keeping in view the number of aspirants for it. Interestingly, B Sriramulu, who represents Molakalmooru Assembly segment in Chitradurga, has got his home district of Ballari; while C N Ashwath Narayana continues as Ramanagra district in-charge, where he seems to be in a turf war with Congress' DK Sivakumar and DK Suresh. The ministers and districts allocated to them are Govind Karjol (Belagavi), KS Eshwarappa (Chikkamagaluru), V Somanna (Chamarajnagara), Umesh Katti (Vijayapura), S Angara (Udupi), Araga Jnanendra (Tumakuru), CC Patil (Bagalkote), Anand Singh (Koppal), Kota Shrinivas Poojari (Uttara Kannada), Prabhu Chauhan (Yadgir) and Murugesh Nirani (Kalaburagi). Also, Shivaram Hebbar (Haveri), ST Somashekar (Mysuru), B C Patil (Chitradurga and Gadag), BA Basavaraj (Davangere), K Sudhakar (Bengaluru Rural), K Gopalaiah (Hassan and Mandya), Shashikala Jolle (Vijayanagara), MTB Nagaraj (Chikkaballapura), KC Narayana Gowda (Shivamogga), BC Nagesh (Kodagu), Sunil Kumar (Dakshina Kannada), Halappa Achar (Dharwad), Shankar B Patil Munenakoppa (Raichur and Bidar), and Munirathna (Kolar). According to party sources, despite demand from several Ministers to be made in-charge of their home districts, the Chief Minister has decided against it while making appointments. Interestingly, the appointment of district in-charge Ministers has come at a time when Bommai is under pressure from party legislators to expand or rejig his Cabinet. However, there are talks in party circles that the expansion or reshuffle of the Cabinet is likely, only after the Assembly elections in five States. There are currently 30 Ministers in the State Cabinet, including the Chief Minister, against the sanctioned strength of 34.

Controversy A group of farmers in Karnatakas Tumakuru wanted to buy a pick-up truck when they were told they couldnt afford it. But they made a movie-style comeback. Aditi Kumar Screengrab It looked like a scene out of a movie. When a group of farmers went to a Mahindra car showroom in Karnatakas Tumakuru to buy a new pick-up truck, they were taunted by the car showroom salesman over their clothes and appearance. He said, I wouldn't even have Rs 10, let alone Rs 10 lakh to buy the car, a farmer is heard saying in a now-viral video that has captured the movie-style comeback for the farmers. Kempe Gowda, a farmer from Ramanapalya, and a group of his friends and relatives reached the showroom and began to look at the cars. However, they began to get snide remarks and taunts from some employees at the showroom. They laughed at us and pointed towards our clothes. They felt that I'm not in a position to pay the money. One of their field officers told me, You probably don't even have Rs 10, you will buy this vehicle? He even said that those who come to buy a vehicle don't come to the showroom the way we had, Kempe Gowda said. Then, Kempe Gowda said, one of the employees said he would deliver the car to them if they were able to procure Rs 10 lakh in 30 minutes. We were standing there and (the employees) were laughing at us. No one came to support us, he said.

However, the car was not delivered to Kempe Gowda. The employee was reportedly unable to keep his word as the waitlist was long. Kempe Gowda is heard saying that they would consider going to the police to resolve the issue in a fair way. We can file a police complaint. If there is a fault on our side we will apologise. On your side, you must promise to never treat farmers this way, he said. The matter did end up going to the police, and a complaint with the showroom employees written apology was filed. But deciding that the apology was not enough, the group reportedly walked away without the car, but with Rs 10 lakh in hand. With PTI inputs
